Great place to hang out and have a picnic on the grass. Can be busy but this is part of its attraction as one can watch street artists and play a game of soccer or simply relax in the friendly chaos. Walk on to the southwest it gets quieter there if you prefer. Check out the concerts and performances in... More

There was a lot of activity happening at Vondelpark when we visited it. Though we didnt catch any of the famous open air concerts etc but we still had a good time sitting around the water and getting pictures taken on the "Iamsterdam" One tip: bring takeaway food with you for an impromptu picnic on the grass!

We didn't manage to walk around the whole park, we underestimated it's size for our already sore feet, but the parts we did see were lovely. It's so nice to see so many people out enjoying the sunshine - cycling, walking, sitting on the grass. It's nice and peaceful after the busy city centre.

We stayed at a house for a week very close to the park and ended up using the park every day to access downtown. The park has a lot to offer with art, noumerous paths, ponds and restaurants. It is ideal for a walks, workouts and bike trips - and also for a small picnick or a meal at one... More

Loved it! The weather was outstanding, so it was filled with groups of people having little barbecues and hanging out. There's lots of sculptures scattered around the park. Lovely for riding a bike!

Huge park with gardens, ponds and a few sculptures. Lovely for a walk on a sunny day, or a little bike ride.

I went there a couple of times and I had really good days spending with friends just to relax. Thats a park in the middle of the city center and is nice to have just a walk there or sit down for a picnic and even some festivals that might occur in the area....

A really beautiful park on a gorgeous day. We couldn't find a play park but the ice cream was absolutely fantastic. Some parts of the park were a bit dirty but not worse than you would expect for a large park in a big city.
